Sting: Brand New Day.Brand New Day exhibits about as many musical styles as there are tracks, all encased in dense, meticulous production. The album begins promisingly. “A Thousand Years” pulses atop a lush, two-note foundation. “A Desert Rose” folds trilling Algerian pop into trip-hop. This is not Sting as you are used to hear him – this is Sting on Acid – and it’s good.
